About this Item

44p. A very good copy with a 1/2" closed tear and all pages easily read. Protected in mylar cover. Wednesday, April 7, 1779 to Monday, May 3, 1779. Much on the events regarding General Sullivan as he had received intelligence noting that the Enemy were preparing to attack near Tiverton; the feared attack would possibly come upon not only Rhode Island but Massachusetts itself. Vessels of the British threatened the inhabitants of Nantucket on April 15 and a contingent were proposed to be sent there. Enormous sums were voted for these local battles, empowering militias as well as the regular army to fight the Enemy. Much also on the various vessels that were captured and attempts to obtain the release of the prisoners. On April 26 Paul Revere, Lt-Colonel of the Corps of Artillery wished to sell the cargo of the Minerva so officers could purchase clothing., there is a discussion of selling the goods of the enemy who are enemies of the United States of America.
